Lost File Sharing after Installing Comodo firewall
« on: April 29, 2007, 05:30:19 AM »
Hi everyone,

Im not very technical and need some assistance with comodo firewall.

Ive just installed the comodo firewall on one of my home network computers (4 workstations total on network, 2 always on & other two are laptops not always connected). So far so good.

I am trying to access shared files and folders on the machine that now has comodo installed, but I cant see any of the shared files & obviuosly cant access any of them from any of the other workstations...

Im running XP sp2 on all. Any suggestions anyone??

Thanks in advance

OK

Glad to have been a great help to myself on this one (:LGH)

The 2 main machines on the network now appear to be the best of friends and are talking to each other once again (:TNG)

Ive added the following to "Network Control Rules"

Rule #0
Action = Allow
Protocol = IP
Direction = In
Source IP = single ip (xxx.xxx.x.xx)
Destination IP = any
IP details = Any

The issue appears resolved, but if this is incorrect & poses a security issue, please let me know.

You should do this by adding a trusted network from Security -> Tasks. Comodo will automatically create appropriate rules for you.

Thanks Rasha...I will do this, as it will probably make things easier when I connect the other workstations onto the Network
